Sir Charles Hubert Parry (1848–1918)

Hubert ParryAdmired by Elgar, Parry was also a figurehead for subsequent generations of English composers including Holst, Howells and Finzi. He strongly believed in the importance of folk music and of amateur music making, and though his two sets of Characteristic Popular Tunes of the British Isles for easy piano duet predate the folk-song revival, they demonstrate his belief in a democratic musical ideal that would be fully realised in the work of his pupil Ralph Vaughan Williams.
